Reminds me of those Darwin Awards books. Extremely mean-spirited, even cruel, in retrospect but I got a chuckle out of those back in my ignorant youth.

Sort of like the Herman Cain Award for COVID deniers who get COVID and die. Very funny and enjoyable while callous and meanspirited at the same time.

I’ve wondered for awhile whether we have a mouse/mice because every so often both we and the cats seem to think there’s something in the walls. There’s no other evidence for it, and if a mouse showed up on the main floor two of our cats are solid killers. But I decided I should get a trap, much as I was squeamish about it. I found one online that is supposedly more humane—it delivers an electrical shock for instant death—and decided, okay, no suffering. Went out to the hardware store and went to the pest control section, and winced at the products proudly announcing “kill” and “death” and got weirded out, just couldn’t do it. I know, I know, but that’s how I am w/r/t killing. But then I saw some kind of hypersonic doohickey that supposedly emits a painful sound that only rodents can hear. I have no idea whether it works, but I saw it as an escape hatch and snapped it up. We’ll see if anything happens or doesn’t (of course, if there were no mice, who know if it works), but I avoided a kill device for now.

Alternative idea: just tell Beanie that you have squirrels in the walls and let nature take its course.

That seems a good option for a Beaneater infestation, too.

For that, you’d probably need a bigger hole in the wall and a bigger bucket.
